Cancel Black Panther
00:54:50
Cancel Black Panther. Haha! Wait you thought we were for real? You just went and got mad before you listened to the episode? The team discusses the "controversy" around the latest issue of Black Panther, and why sometimes we need to let creators tell their stories before we react. This one is extra spicy as BenHaMeen brings the heat and the hammer down on the controversy and Tatiana King tries valiantly to keep it under control. Press play, and the only way we would ever Cancel Black Panther was after fifty eleven sequels when they make him a white dude.

Scream Squad - Good Night, George Romero
00:42:07
Happy Halloween! We decided to spend the most special night of the year bigging up one of horror's brightest lights (who we happened to have lost this year). George Romero might be the Father of the modern zombie film (& tv show & comic) but he also made other movies and we thought what better way to honor the maestro than to discuss a pair of his lesser known earlier works: SEASON OF THE WITCH (1972) and THE CRAZIES (1973) -- both of which will be included in the upcoming "Between Night & Dawn" box set dedicated to Romero's earlier non "Dead" output.

Outlaw Barz: The Lie Called Death Note
00:57:07
We tried to avoid it. We didn’t want to do it. But we would be doing you a disservice if we dismissed Netflix’s Death Nope... sorry we meant Death Note, without viewing it. We went in knowing it was going to be a dumpster fire defecating on a series that a certain Diva genuinely enjoys. Yet still we rose to the occasion. Too bad Death Note didn’t do the same. So, in this episode, aptly titled The Lie Called Death Note, the ladies dissect what could have been, but definitely was not, a good movie. Now, has anyone seen a Diva's notebook? It's black... Nevermind I found it. Time to rewatch the credits.  Anime Mentioned in this Episode Blame Music: Intro: @sparks-dynamite Outro: @kensabeast

SlamBros: At Least We Have the Fashion Files
00:52:44
If the last week of programming has taught us anything, there are no good people in the WWE right now, but at least we have the Fashion Files. The Slambros, Boman12L and Illa YC, return for the 33rd / 38th episode and reflect on the current WWE product or what some would describe as lack of product. SummerSlam is only a few weeks away but plans have changed because of injuries to a few key superstars. If the dirt sheets are correct, it would appear Enzo really is an unpopular character backstage. Plus, the latest episode in our longest running drama series – ¡Las Aventuras de Alberto El Patrón y sus Amigos! While both main brand shows have been solid--often filled with one or two good matches-- not much has been memorable with the build to this year’s SummerSlam. As good as they have been, it's saying a lot when a Fashion Files segment is the best things on a two hour show. Much of that is the result of booking changes and poor executions of stories. Still, the Slambros work through it and have recaps for RAW and Smackdown Live inside. We have more, so stay tuned to the Slambros! 01:24 Diggin' in the Dirt 11:00 ¡Las Aventuras de Alberto El Patrón y sus Amigos! 19:38 RAW recap 37:23 Smackdown Live recap 51:26 Shout outs/Outro

The Scream Squad - Bad Religion
00:45:20
This week Los Leos are back in the Dungeon to discuss a pair of films with some twisted takes on theology. In The Witchfinder General there's no silver bullet to counter a silver tongue when superstition is used as a cudgel against chaos. Meanwhile in The Wicker Man, we see what really happens when an upstanding (and uptight) citizen ends up with too much of that old-time religion...

If you are of a certain age, you may have played a certain side scrolling game where you fought, as member of the Belmont family, against Dracula and his minions.

The Scream Squad - Mock and Shock
00:37:14
This week on Mock and Shock, Los Leos don their gardening gear and dig into the fertile ground of "fake" docs in the horror genre.  From New Zealand we pay our respects to recent Mockumentary "What We Do In The Shadows" and unearth 1992's BBC legendary game-changing Shockumentary "Ghost Hunter" (which only aired a single time because too many people believed it was real!). We hop to 1999 to discuss the (commercially successful) rise of the found-footage horrors like The Blair Witch Project and compare whose relatives were the most frightened during the mass panic inducing grandaddy of radio dramas, The War of the Worlds.

Outlaw Barz: Bad MamMa Jamma
01:09:44
Despite where our particular fandoms lie, we all presumably have one thing in common -- we have a mother. While parental figures in anime are often few and far between, there is no denying a mother's love, or the lack thereof, has an impact. Most deserve our love and admiration. A few of them don't. In this episode of Outlaw Barz, She's a Bad MamMa Jamma, take a look at some of anime's most memorable mothers. It's true what they say.

Slambros: King of Sleep Style
01:04:50
When they try, even the WWE can put on a decent PPV, even if it features The King of Sleep Style, Randy Orton facing Bray Wyatt in a terrible match. The Boman12L and Illa YC return for the 29th/25th episode of The Slambros! The dirty sheets are popping this week with Billy Corgan is back in the news, once again still trying to keep his wrestling dreams alive. Cody Rhodes has likely chosen a new home promotion. Adam Cole is the hottest free agent in Pro Wrestling right now. Jack Swagger is adjusting to the indie life. Oh course, we have the latest updates on Alberto El Patron! The Slambros reflect on Payback, A mostly solid PPV by the WWE. Everyone from Chris Jericho, Kevin Owens, Alexa Bliss, Braun Strownman and Roman Reigns had a great showing at the PPV. The House of Horrors match was the only blight and what a blight it was. Even after weeks of trying to figure out what the match was supposed to be, it failed to deliver or make sense in anyway. WWE followed a most solid PPV with a good RAW and Smackdown Live as well. With Brock Lesnar on vacation. The Intercontinental Championship is the top belt on RAW for the time being. Things are looking up, as Fin Balor, The Miz, Seth Rolling and Deam Ambrose are tasked with holding down RAW in the interim. Over on Smackdown Live, we have likely seem the end of Chris Jericho’s magical run. He’s off to tour with Fozzy, but before he had one more match with Kevin Owens. Meanwhile the mean girls of the Welcoming Committee continue to run rough shot of the woman’s division. Plus thankfully, The King of Sleep Style, Randy Orton was not on SDLive this week.

Outlaw Barz - The Harry Potter of Anime
00:57:18
Hey Outlawz, let's talk a bit about a little something called "The Harry Potter Syndrome." What's that you ask? Think about it. Harry is an average wizard with a really great support system and an even better PR department. Honestly, he was a legend before he was potty trained. But how much of his fame was earned and how much was thrust upon him? In this episode of Outlaw Barz, the Diva and Sopé chat about those characters that get by with more that a little help from their friends...and explore a long overlooked Naruto theory.

The Scream Squad - Deceased Beasts
00:59:35
So many horror movies play off humanity's primal fears of Mother Nature-- often taking the form of the Supernatural... but from weather to plants, the earth beneath our feet to the other species who walk up on it, nature itself has been serving up stories since the beginning of time and perhaps none more so than those involving our fellow animals. While Jamie Righetti couldn't make it to the Dungeon this week, lucky for us, Chico Leo got to discuss a couple of "animals in horror" movies with special guest Wendy Mays, host of the entertaining animal-oriented Pet Cinematary podcast. On this week's episode, Chico and Wendy dig into the 1989 classic Pet Sematary before doing a deep dive into last year's (surprise) hit shark-attack thriller The Shallows. Along the way they shout-out some other animal-themed horror faves. As always, thanks for listening and Keep Screaming!

Where were you the night Braun Strowman became Legend? The Slambros, Boman12L and Illa YC, return for the 28th / 24th episode and breakdown how much malice is needed to flip a damn ambulance on its side. The Dirt sheets are filled with tragic ends and injuries this week. We say goodbye to Matt Anoa AKA “Rosey” everyone’s favorite Superhero in training. Dash Wilder is injured and Kasuyori Shibata may never wrestle again. On a lighter note, WWE maybe looking to bring the “Broken Hardy” Universe to the WWE Universe. Plus the latest episode of ¡Las Aventuras de Alberto El Patrón y sus Amigos! The main segment is all about Braun Strowman. For two weeks in a row, Braun ruled RAW. Not only did he attempt to murder Roman Reigns on live T.V., him and Big Show once again torn down the ring in RAW’s main event. The legend of Braun wasn’t the only thing happening in the WWE Universe. The Superstar shakeup appears to have bolstered the RAW roster with the best of Smackdown Live’s talent, while the blue brand was left with the scraps. Boman wonders if there is any way to get momentum behind the Bray Wyatt character, while Illa struggles to describe Randy Orton without using the word “boring.” RAW and Smackdown Live recaps and more inside, so stay tuned! 1:44 Diggin’ in the Dirt 17:22 ¡Las Aventuras de Alberto El Patrón y sus Amigos! 20:40 Braun Became Legend 27:07 RAW Recap 37:42 Smackdown Live Recap 48:33 announcements and Outro

The Colorblind Guerrilla? Did we really go there? Yes we did. After the fourth anniversary extravaganza last week it seems that the floodgates to Trifling Heights are, once again, wide open and we had to welcome everyone's favorite Nina Simone rendition to the island. Don't worry we don't spend too much time there as we were too busy rejoicing over the Thor: Ragnarok teaser, Josh Brolin as Cable in Deadpool 2, and much more!

Outlaw Barz - Let's Hear It for the Bishounen
01:03:47
We all have our our reasons for watching anime. For some of us, it's the action sequences. For others, it's the phenomenal soundtracks. Still others are captivated by the storytelling.

Slambros: Aftermath of WrestleMania 33
01:05:57
Dirt sheets are light this week, with Jim Ross returning to his WWE family and Alberto El Patron forming a new family. Boman ponders the possible benefits and loses of WWE buying Ring of Honor. Plus, Shelton Benjamin has been cleared to return to action. Mostly the Slambros are here to recap the many wrestling related events that took place in and around Orlando this past week. In the main segment, The Slambros go over the show of shows. For the most part, WrestleMania was a good event, but maybe it is time the WWE consider a shorter show. Seven hours is a lot wrestling for anyone to endure in one sitting. While some matches like AJ vs Shane blew expectations away, other like Randy Orton vs Bray Wyatt failed to achieve anything. And of course, The Slambros have contrasting opinions about Undertaker vs Roman Reigns.

Slambros: WrestleMania 33 Feat. Mega Ran
01:06:17
WrestleMania 33 in Orlando is here, that means it is time for another special edition of The Slambros. Mega Ran once again joins Boman12L and Illa YC, on this Super-sized 26th/22th edition. It has been a slightly confusing journey to WrestleMania 33 this year. After one of the best Royal Rumbles in years, the WWE committed to a WrestleMania cards that very few people were excited for. Disappointing or not, you make predictions for the WrestleMania card you got not the one you wish you had. The WrestleMania 33 preshow, an infinite desert of struggle talent, a wasteland of 17 hours of promo packages and forgotten wrestlers is home to the at least two Title matches. The first being The RAW Tag Team Championship, now being contested as a ladder match. Smackdown’s women are also competing on the preshow – All of them – for a change to win their brands title. Round things out is the annual Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal AKA- The Jobber Battle Royal – AKA Illa YC’s “cash these checks” Battle Royal. Shane McMahan vs AJ Styles, Roman Reigns vs The Undertaker, John Cena and Nikkie Bella vs The Miz and Maryse and main card of WrestleMania has its share of questionable matches. Still the steller work of The Miz, Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens are bond to make up for it. Plus there is Lesnar vs Goldberg. Will this be another 30 Sec Squash or a hoss fight?

Slambros: The Miz Stay Winning
01:05:37
While some wrestlers like Sammi Zayn cannot catch a break, others like The Miz stay winning! The Slambros, Boman12L and Illa YC, return for the 21th episode and are once again joined by Okayplayer.com managing editor, Kevito Clark. The dirt sheets are filled with injury updates and Billionaires crashing Bentleys this week. The Broken Hardys, while currently enjoying a run as ROH Tag Team Champions, are facing legal troubles from some struggling wrestling promotion. Daniel Bryan hints at a possible return to the ring once his WWE contract is up, while Naomi father’s hints she be in the ring for Mania. Alberto once again has some family trouble, as the love of his life Paige had her phone stolen, hacked and had personal photos and videos leaked to the internet. With WrestleMania under two weeks away, the WWE is doing there best to sell us on matches we initially didn’t want to see. RAW continues to be serviceable, with Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho still being the parts of the show. Mick Foley’s firing did evoke some emotions out the Slambros, but Stephanie’s poorly motived character looms over too much of RAW. Sami Zayn may be a guy who can take a loss, but how many loses are too many? Shane McMahan can still jump, but even a coast to coast elbow cannot overshadow how much The Miz stay winning. Two weeks in a row, The Miz aka Mike from the Real World and wife Maryse are the top attractions on Smackdown Live. Between and Talking Smack and Total Bella parody, family Mizanin are solidifying themselves as one of the best acts in all of pro wrestling.

Slambros: WWE Logic - Don't Think About It
00:59:13
We are three week away from WrestleMania and WWE logic is on pull display. While Vince and crew honestly believe they are making some engaging choices to keep people excited for the grandest wrestling show of the year, they are anything but. The Slambros, Boman12L and Illa YC, return for the 20th episode and try to maintain their sanity in the face of baffling WWE logic. Before then, The Slambros go digging in the Dirt! This week, the dirt sheets are filled with hostage situations and wrestling signings. America’s other large promotions are making moves to talents like the Broken Hardy Family, Alberto El Patron, Bully Ray and others to their bands. No one knows what’s going on with Shaq vs The Big Show for WrestleMania. The first match announced for the show may not happen. Does “New Look” Big Show have Shaq shook or has Diesel not been taking this “Dream Match” seriously? Fastlane was another middling WWE PPV. While the show did clear the road for the storylines heading toward Mania, it did so in the most boring way possible. WWE Logic was in full effects throughout the show, as wrestlers seeming forgot the rules and mechanics of wrestling matches. RAW and Smackdown Live were also used to set up the most insipid matches while closing the possibility of exciting mix ups. Hey at least Randy Orton vs AJ Styles was dope.

You've seen him before in anime. He's tall, dark, handsome...and utterly useless. He can't fight. He's easily captured. Long-term memory is optional. In this episode of Outlaw Barz, Tall, Dark and Ho Hum, we examine the phenomenon of gents in distress. From nobility in Victorian England to inept fighters in the Holy Grail War, there are no shortage of men needing rescuing--or women ready to save their men (and everyone else).

Next up, Abby is a woman possessed by Eshu, an orisha of chaos in this possession flick that Jamie and Chico find more interesting than The Exorcist. Finally, we dig into the gorgeous Ganja & Hess, a vampire film that might be the genre's finest achievement.

Slambros: Respect and Cause
01:01:41
Respect, ladies and gentlemen, this is an easy concept, you better put it on Samoa Joe’s name. The Slambros Boman12l and Illa YC return for the 19th episode and hopefully do not anger “The Destroyer”. ​​ This week we dig in the dirt with heavy hearts, as we report and reflect on the passings of Chavo Guerrero Sr, Nicole Bass, Ivan Koloff and George “The Animal” Steele. Unfortunately the sad news does not end there, as Naomi had to relinquish her Smackdown’s Women’s Title. On the positive side, Finn Balor and Seth Rollins should be cleared to return soon. Perhaps best of all, Lucha Underground is coming to Netflix! With the help of a temporal device, Boman and YC jump back and forth through time to recap the last two weeks of wrestling. The hellscape that is RAW is even bleaker after Kevin Owens destroyed Friendship. The Slambros, like everyone else, are living in a “post-friendship” world. Kevin Owens turned on and beat down his best friend and “Brother” Chris Jericho and the latter has not been seen since. Sami Zayn needs to learn a thing or two about respect and figure out how much he should put on Samoa Joe’s name. Other acts like Roman Reigns and The New Day are stuck in waiting-for-WrestleMania-holding patterns, while Braun Strowman continues to impress. On Smackdown Live, futures are looking brighter for an excommunicated bearded cultist heading into Mania; however the blue brand might want to invest into instant replay. The seeds of a mix tag match for Mania and being planted and it clear only half of the parties are invested. Still surprising us, Randy Orton’s slow build to Mania is staying fresh each week, an unusual occurrence for modern WWE storytelling. There’s much more, so stay tuned to Slambros! 1:40: Diggin’ in The Dirt 11:51 ¡Las Aventuras de Alberto El Patrón y sus Amigos! 15:25 RAW and Smackdown Live Recaps 56:32 Respect to the Taphouse Usos and Outro

Scream Squad - Monstrous Moms
00:35:35
When Monstrous Moms Attack! On this episode of The Scream Squad, Jamie and Chico kick off Women in Horror Month by looking at single mothers in horror. Why are single moms painted as villains while single dads get to be heroes? Do single moms "losing it" mentally, reinforce stereotypes about women being overly emotional? How does the idea of childbearing and the subsequent nurturing of a child (or lack thereof) used as a trope throughout horror? We look at THE BABADOOK, THE EXORCIST, FRIDAY THE 13th and more to understand why moms have it harder than anyone else in the genre.

SlamBros: WrestleMania, Not For The Fans
00:53:41
Ladies and gentlemen, we are officially on the road to WrestleMania. In the weeks leading up to the Rumble we had no idea what Vince was planning for Orlando, but these latest rumors make it appear WrestleMania is not for the Fans. The Slambros, Boman12l and Illa YC, return for the 22th/18th episode to try to make sense of these rumors. Not even a day after the Royal Rumble, rumors of a supposed WrestleMania card set the internet a flutter. Excitement for the big show once again turned to apathy, After a year of signing some of best talent the wrestling world had to offer, rumors report many of top signings in mid card matches or having no current plans at all? Roman Reign is once again getting top billing, with Vince  convinced a “Dream Match” with a Legendary Superstar is all Roman needs to get people behind him. What’s in store for the best friends Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho? Will we finally see a break up or will their friendship last all of eternity? Is WWE crazy enough to go with John Cena vs. Randy Orton at Mania or does the blue brand have something else planned for the WWE title. The Slambros breakdown all these rumors while trying to figure who this rumored card is for if not for the fans. Not to be forgotten, Elimination Chamber is this week and the Slambros have predictions for the Smackdown Live PPV. Is Cena really walking out the Chamber with the belt or will Randy’s real WrestleMania challenge be reveal on Sunday? Nikkie Bella and Natty having been going at it since Survivor Series. Will the other Bella finally get her revenge on Natty? Yes most likely, but we can still speculate wildly about how it might happen! The Slambros have predictions for all these and more inside, so stay tuned! 02:27 Diggin’ in the Dirt WrestleMania Rumors 32:34 RAW RECAP 40:41 Elimination Chamber Predictions

Much more of course we could call this one a conversation with Ta-Nehisi but we need Samurai Jesus after catching the Samurai Jack trailer, Tatiana with the Tech, Benhameen on Comics I Copped and a Geekquently Asked Questions segment that asks will Marvel ever catch DC? In animation people don't get it twisted.

Outlaw Barz - The Anime Struggle Is Real
00:40:31
Honesty hour Outlawz! Take a look at your anime queue. How many series did you start that you know you will never finish? Don't worry. This is a safe space; we won't judge you. There are a myriad of reasons that a series gets abandoned. Sometimes, the main characters are too abrasive or the plot takes too long to progress. Sometimes, a show simply does not live up to the hype. In this episode of Outlaw Barz, The Anime Struggle is Real, we take a look at those series that should have hooked us, but missed the mark. List of Anime Mentioned in this Episode: One Piece Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Mob Psycho 100 Suzuka Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo Kill La Kill Knights of Sidonia Naruto Inuyasha Sword Art Online S2 Hunter x Hunter Fairy Tail Freezing Psycho Pass S2 91 Days Music Intro: RaisiM1222 Music Outro: Monster Vibes

We give credit when it's due--somehow the WWE has managed to make Royal Rumble 2017 one of the most unpredictable Rumbles in years.

Finally, a cult classic, Let's Scare Jessica to Death, which takes a look at vampires and mental illness from a female perspective. Plus, if given the chance, would Jamie and Chico become immortal?

SlamBros: Even Michael Cole Can Be Good
00:58:58
Given enough time, even Michael Cole can be good. 2017 is going to be a strange year, friends. The Slambros Boman12L and Illa YC return for the 16th episode! As always, the dirt sheets are packed with rumors and news from both in and out the ring. We say goodbye to Jimmy Superfly Snuka. After ten years, the WWE has found Kurt Angle and will be inducting him in their Hall of Fame WrestleMania weekend. While the WWE UK Tournament showed us Michael Cole can be good on commentary, Illa YC wants to know “what happens next?” The UK belts is by far one of the best designed belts in years, but will Tyler Bate be defending that title anytime soon? RAW, like Michael Cole, showed it too can be good if a little effort is made. When WWE is not too busy editing video clips to make it appear people care for the life and times of Roman F. Reigns, they can put on a fairly decent wrestling show. Lucha Underground is on break, but rumors say it could be heading soon to Netflix. Smackdown Live continues its strong run with cage matches and logical reveals. We have recaps and more, so stay tuned. Listen to the show and follow us on Twitter at @SlamBrosPod!

It's the last episode under President Obama, and we are blaming Black Spider-Man for everything. Who cares that Miles Morales will finally be starring in a big screen production when the too much sauce POTUS is leaving office?

Scream Squad - Where Is Her Mind
00:37:23
This week on The Scream Squad, Chico and Jamie kick off the new year by exploring an age-old horror trope: women who lose it. What is it about talent that drives women to madness? We look at Black Swan, Mulholland Drive, Starry Eyes and The Neon Demon to try and understand why we love watching women self-destruct. What does it say about us that we love complicated male geniuses and women whose talent ultimately destroys them? What connection does beauty and youth have to talent? And how do these films misrepresent mental illness and its connection to talent? Tune in as we unpack all of this and more!

SlamBros: The Roman Reigns Problem

We get an update on “the most interesting man in wrestling,” New Japan Pro Wrestling announces their first solo US tour, New Ring of Honor resigning’s and results from Wrestle Kingdom 11. The Royal Rumble is a few weeks away, mean there are plenty of WrestleMania rumors in the air. While three matches are reportedly “locked”, everything about the card is in flux. It may be a new year but somethings appear to be the same. Not even a week into 2017, there appears to be a new Roman Reigns problem on the horizon. This aforementioned problem is still a major issue as much of the audience is not connecting with him. However, his rumored Mania plans will leave many worried. At this point, is there anyone who could give Roman the rub? We also recap Lucha Underground, RAW and Smackdown Live and promised to be nice to all the new people at the gym. 00:53 Digging in the Dirt 13:37 Latest Rumble and WrestleMania Rumors 24:04 Lucha Underground 26:35 RAW Recap 40:31 Smackdown Live 49:51 Outro

The Scream Squad - Satanic Santa
00:45:30
What up Squad! On this holiday-themed episode, Chico and Jamie dig into the Satanic roots behind the jolly fat man we know as Santa Claus - could he really be the devil in disguise? We examine the darker side of Santa with Santa's Slay and look into some of the sinister aspects to the Santa story, including the influence of slavery and colonialism on St. Nick's "helper," Zwarte Piet. Then, we dive into some of the creepier aspects of Santa, including voyeurism and how Catholic guilt ties into being naughty or nice with Christmas Evil and Silent Night, Deadly Night. Plus, we take look at Krampus and what happens when Santa doesn't come to town. So lock your windows, block your fireplace and tune in!

For the second time in a row Boman12L and Illa YC are joined by a guest, rapper extraordinaire Mega Ran! The new Trio’s champions drive right into the dirt sheets, examining injury reports on Zack Ryder, WWE’s UK tournament, Booker T’s announcement he’s running for mayor of Houston, Illa YC’s own announcement he’s running for mayor of Houston and why being threatened by #BlackExcellence is ridiculous. Roadblock: End of the Line was the last WWE PPV of 2016 and being a WWE PPV, feelings are mixed about the overall show. Sasha vs Charlotte 27, Kevin Owen vs Mr. Too Much Conditioner, Seth Rollins vs Chris Jericho, all good matches but matches we are seeing too often. Boman struggles to recap RAW. The highlight being the toy cage they are trying to sell. In the main segment, the trio reflect on their favorite moments and matches of 2016. What will make the cut, will it just be WWE content or will some Lucha Underground or New Japan moments make the list?

Time travel is a tricky beast to tame. If you forget to flush the toilet in the past, you could bring about World War III.

Thank you to Combat Jack for the inspiration behind the title of this episode, as Benhameen & Illa YC expound on what it exactly means to be a hurt ninja & why Lawrence hit it so you don't have to do that.

SlamBros: Goldberg and the Traphouse Usos Win Survivor Series
00:50:19
We know, you properly feel some type of way about Goldberg vs Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series. Rest easy now, The Slambros are back and they have all the angles covered. Boman12L and Illa YC have lived through damn near a week of back to back to back to back nights of WWE style professional wrestling and there is plenty to digest. Before all that, the dirt sheets must be dug through. Shelton Benjamin gives a timeframe for his hopeful WWE return. Rick Flair visits ESPN and shares a crazy story about getting struck by lightning. Finally another story involving Booker T and questionable requests from WWE management. WWE's long weekend in Canada started on Saturday with NXT Takeover: Toronto. WWE home grown “indie” brand once again proved to the superior show with matches, stories and wrestlers that fully connected with its audience. DIY vs The Revival, Mickie James vs Asuka, Samoa Joe vs Shinsuke Nakamura, there was plenty to love in Toronto that night. Other than the unexpected finish of Goldberg vs Lesnar, much of Survivor Series was an acceptable WWE PPV – high spot in many largely forgettable matches. Survivor Series still had a lot of good, Bray Wyatt got a win, The Traphouse Usos are clearly more over as heel, then when they were babyfaces and Shane McMahon almost got beheaded in the ring. RAW teases a breakup of the best friends of Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho. While the Slambros are happy they didn’t split, they do wish WWE did a better job of booking their champions to look stronger. Smackdown Live also has another strong show and Boman wonders who will win in American Alpha vs the Wyatts? Listen to the show and follow us on Twitter at @SlamBrosPod!

00:52:26
There's nothing like Thanksgiving and the holidays to make you question the state of your relationships. On this episode of Outlaw Barz, Guess Who's Not Coming to Dinner, the ladies examine pairings not suitable for dinner at the holiday table. Is attempted murder as bad as incessant teasing? In the real world, probably not. But both are viable reasons to end up eating cold cuts instead of Nana's home cooking. Also, Sope makes a startling confession. So grab your seat at the kiddie table and listen. List of Anime Mentioned in this Episode: Sailor Moon Death Note Elfen Lied Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress Fate/Stay Night Erased Princess Mononoke

As America has likely cannibalized itself with this past Presidential election, they discuss how cannibalism is tied into the fabric of American history with Manifest Destiny and more.

Negan For President (Special Delivery)
00:44:48

After last night's The Walking Dead I think even Rick would agree that Negan knows how to get what he wants and Congress and The Senate wouldn't hold a candle to Lucille. Listen as BenHaMeen & Illa review the week in television including the results of a certain election you may have heard about. Plus a quick shout to the comments section, and a few films that you should be spending your good money on these days. All this and more in this very special episode of Special Delivery.

SlamBros: WWE is Consistent in its Disappointments
00:43:10
Between America and WWE shenanigans, this week has been a consistent in its disappointments. The duo of Boman12L and Illa YC survived election night, and try to make sense of the crazy worlds of professional wrestling. This week, the dirt sheets are packed with news of returning legends. Both The Undertaker and Edge will be on the 900th episode of Smackdown(Live). Spoilers for the next WWE Roadblock network special, seem to indicate a Kevin Owens vs Roman Reigns feud starting right after Survivor Series. Elsewhere, Billy Corgan still hasn’t been paid for the loan he gave to some struggling small business. In the main segment, The Slambros breakdown WWE’s consistent use of inconsistent characters. Stephanie McMahon, Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns, Mick Foley, they all have issues -- mostly ill-defined motivations. Illa and Boman, each add their perspective to the problem and offer simple solutions WWE could try to make the story telling process smoother. The Cruiserweights are getting their own show, after a disappointing premier of RAW. Will 205 Live be more in line with the style of wrestling seem on the Cruiserweight Class or the toned down WWE “high flying” style? James Ellsworth is consistent in being one of the most “over” characters on WWE programming right now. A true underdog, one Illa YC see’s the perfect X-men comparison.

Marvel Loves White Men (Special Delivery)
00:51:05
We already know Marvel Loves White Men, but the real question is do they hate Asian men? Why does Wong get the shaft in Doctor Strange? Why does Benhameen identify more with Baron Mordo than with Stephen Strange himself? Does Illa's argument for all sizes matter hold up? This and more will all make sense to you as we get down and dirty with Doctor Strange, The Walking Dead, Flash, Legends Of Tomorrow and much more on another instant classic episode of Special Delivery. We bid a fond farewell to the first season of Atlanta and two brothers speak on why Insecure is one of the best shows in television today. Benhameen also takes back any love for Legends Of Tomorrow as the latest episode is the most trifling use of slavery as a storytelling device since well just say ever. Some mild spoilers for Doctor Strange in the episode from 10:00 to 21:00. Also an incredible discussion that you need to hear so if you haven't peeped Strange make sure you do and then listen to FanBros.

00:38:41
In classic form, Boman12L and Illa YC are focused on all things Hell in a Cell 2016. Before then, the two go digging in the dirt sheets. AJ Styles set the internet ablaze revealing he’s hoping for a Shawn Michaels dream match and continued to fan the flames for a possible match at the upcoming Royal Rumble in San Antonio – Michaels' home town. What could a possible Michaels return mean for AJ and WWE? Is Michaels such a company man he would break his retirement to help Vince put butts in seats? The strange adventures of Alberto El Patron continue this week. The latest twist, girlfriend Paige proposing to El Patron in the middle of a ring. Is there more to this or is Alberto one of the luckiest guys in wrestling right now? In the main segment: Hell in a Cell 2016 predictions. This year’s card features three- yes –three Hell in a Cell matches. Is more better or has WWE overbooked themselves into a corner again? With three Cell matches, the Slambros try to figure out who’s doing what spot. Are Owens and Rollins going over the top? Will Roman or Rusev bust down a Cell wall? What about Sasha Banks and Charlotte Flair, the first women to ever complete inside Hell in a Cell? Will the ladies end the show, what can be expected from their match? Is Sasha healthy enough for such a physical and possibly brutal match?

We miss the pics of the week broham.

Josh, who wrote and directed the film, digs into the history behind clown sightings, which predate Poltergeist (1982) as well as It (1990). What is it about clowns that we find so sinister?

SlamBros: Ironman Boman and The List
00:32:12
While YC might be training on the far sides of the globe, The Boman is here to hold things down ironman style. RAW’s struggles could not be more real right now. Not only did they have to put on a show after a lackluster PPV, RAW had to complete against the first presidential debate of Donald Trump and Hilary Clinton. How did RAW handle the challenge? Not well. The dirt sheets are always filled with intriguing finds. The WWE may want to bring Matt Hardy and his broken brilliance back under the watching eye of “MeekMahan.” Randy Orton jumps in on the Colin Kaepernick debate in a series of tweets. Rounding things out, Ryback is in talks with Bellator for a possible fight. Could this be is another subtle jab at CM Punk? The shade is real out here.
